Februry 6, 2014 - Missler Software is very happy to announce that in 2013 it achieved its highest ever turnover in the history of the company. Exceeding the €27m mark the company has well surpassed its expectations for 2013 in a not so easy worldwide economic context.
International sales have been the main driver behind the company’s excellent 2013 results. 3 countries that can be singled out for their outstanding results are China, Germany and the USA. With sales more than doubling in China and the USA over the past 12 months Missler Software is confident that the direct sales offices put in place in Chicago and Shanghai are now clearly working effectively.
In Germany Missler Software works with a well established network of resellers who sell directly to the enduser. The German market increased by 20% compared to 2012 and now represents nearly 10% of overall company sales. « Our resellers employ in the region of 100 employees who exclusively sell to and service TopSolid customers all over the German territory. Germany, as well as its neighbouring German-speaking countries, is a key industrial region in Europe and this is reflected in our company turnover » explains Christian Arber, CEO of Missler Software.
2 other regions that cannot be ignored in any look at Missler Software’s results are France and Japan. France is the homeplace of TopSolid and still today represents 65% of overall company turnover. This figure can be explained by TopSolid’s dominant position on the French market. Japan was one of the first countries TopSolid was exported to and today accounts for 5% of company turnover. TopSolid reseller, Kodama Corporation, has more than 2000 TopSolid customers in Japan. « TopSolid’s growth rate over the past number of years both in and outside France reflects our customer’s strong confidence and loyalty in the brand, as well as our long term commitment to Research and Development. We are confident that 2014 will be another successful year for Missler Software and TopSolid » concludes Christian Arber.
